About marlene frazzini
I have been going to St.Maarten for many years and go three times a year to refurbish the villa. I am a decorator by trade and the villa is quite lovely. I change the color scheme each year and match everything to the dishes and glasses with the furnishings. I take "HUGH" pride in our villa and know you will see my efforts! Enjoy!

second stay even more delightful than the 1st! LOVE Villa Star!
after our first visit to Villa Star we couldn't imagine that our second would be even better! Thank you to the owners Marlene & Al for the most memorable holiday! We noticed all the recent updates you have made to the villa to make it even more beautiful than before! Your daily staff met our every need and was such a joy to meet! We hope to see her again on our next visit! Your activity suggestions for our second visit hit the nail on the head and were the perfect combination of adventure and the serene relaxation we had hoped for! We simply can't say enough about our time in your gorgeous villa on one of the most beautiful islands in the world! If anyone reading this is on the fence about booking..... just do it! You won't be disappointed!
Thank you Patricia and I am so pleased that you loved all of the upgrades and extras! We strive every year to make villa Star greater than ever! Hoping to see you back soon and enjoy your summer! Marlene & AL
Beautiful view of Guana Bay, St. Maarten
Marlene, the owner, went above and beyond to help us have an enjoyable stay. She sent us a 14-page package of information, with tips and recommendations, on places to eat and things to see which really added so much to our vacation. We communicated several times before actually arriving at the villa.
The pool and grounds were well cared for and everyone we met was very friendly.
We enjoyed using the pool very much and it was right outside our villa.
We enjoyed eating breakfast and several dinners out on the deck which had a beautiful view of the bay and nearby islands. The kitchen was well-equipped and we used the BBQ often. The whole house was clean and very nicely decorated.
There are 2 bathrooms on the main floor so the people that slept upstairs in the second bedroom had to come downstairs at night to use the bathroom. (That is the way the whole complex was built).
We were happy to have wifi right in the Villa.
Guana Bay was beautiful to look at and we walked along the beach but we did not go swimming because we were warned by many people that there was an "undertow" and several people have drowned there. But there were many other beaches that we were able to drive to and go swimming.
The stars were great to view at night. I know why they named it Villa Star!
We did see some spectacular sunrises too.
Marcella, the housekeeper, did an excellent job. She greeted us when we first arrived and showed us all around the Villa. She came in everyday to clean, make the beds, and run the dishwasher. (We were not supposed to run the dishwasher because it was "temperamental").
There was no washer or dryer that we could use, but we could pay $20 a load to have the housekeeper do it for us.
We did have a problem with lots of ants in the kitchen daily even though we put food away in the refrigerator and loaded our used dishes into the dishwasher. We sprayed Raid on the floor and bleach on the countertops to kill them . Marcella cleaned up the dead ants everyday. (I think this is a common problem there at certain times of the year just because it is an island and right near the water).
All in all we had a delightful vacation!
Thank you for your kind words.....and responding...... I have never heard of anyone drowning in Guana Bay and I have been swimming there since 1988! The renters all know that we do not provide washer & dryer for their use as it is located in the cellar with a very low ceiling and not conducive at all for the guest's comfort. We advise this in our packet. Also we always explain in our packet about the tiny ants that visit once in awhile and we never know when that will be. They are very tiny we can hardly see them and we have our own exterminator that treats our home every three weeks and always before a guest arrives. We also provide raid for our guests use if they see any. Villa Star's owners and staff strive to have the villa in pristine order at all times. It is a lovely place and we have many repeat guests each year!
Sweet place on a fabulous island
Thank you Marlene for a wonderful holiday adventure. The Villa Star was the perfect size for our group of three. The house had everything we needed. Marlene was quick to respond from the initial reservation till after the vacation. The house had fantastic views of the ocean and was also steps away from a private beach that probably has the best waves on the island. It is centrally located for easy access to the entire island. While we did not spend much time at the villa the complex had a nice pool also with great views and many nice neighbors. Look forward to returning as there is so much to do one can't possibly do it in one go!
Marieke & Filip & our 2 sons
We really loved our stay at the villa! It was perfect for us and our children. We really liked the cozyness and at the same time the luxury and convenience of the villa and the complex with the nice pool for our children. Marcella was really helpfull. The view on the ocean and St. Barth is beautifull. Thanks for all the tips, we really explored the island with its many beaches, nice places and restaurants. We would definitely love to come back one day.
the best 3 weeks!
We rented Villa Star for 3 weeks and couldn't have asked for more luxury or relaxation. The Villa was immaculate and the items provided in the unit were exactly what we used. We enjoyed being just steps to the sea and near the pool as well. The suggestions you made for dining and excursions were spot on and we met great people along the way. We didn't have any issues other than our plane was delayed upon departure... but other than that, it was 3 weeks of BLISS! How soon can we book again? Am messaging now to check availability before year end. Would love to visit over the holidays!
EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED! THANK YOU!
Marlene and Al's Villa Star was exactly what we needed- the comfort and luxury of the villa, the proximity to the beach, we lacked for nothing! We loved being so close to the ocean and feel the ocean breezes in the villa. Your choice of decor was perfect for our home away from home. We were so comfortable in the villa. We did call your staff as needed and they were so attentive and meet all our requests. We didn't want to leave! We could have used one week solid just to enjoy the villa and another to venture out during the day... we did however venture out and visit several of the restaurants and places of interest that you suggested in the welcome packet you sent us prior to our trip. A+ holiday for us! We hope to get back before year end!
Art galleries, Massages on beach or in spa, butterflly farmBeauty salon, Manicure, Pedicure minutes from all of these services...also massage in the villa available! Minutes from downtown shopping and casinos and some of the finest restaurants ever! So many a must!! day trips to Anguilla, Saba or St Barts
